Hair loss is one of the most common cosmetic ailments in the US. Men and women alike find themselves losing their hair from aging, genetics, or medical conditions. Depending on the cause of hair loss, some people can switch their medications or change their lifestyle and see their hair come back. For others, who’s hair loss has a different cause, hair restoration treatments are the only hope to see meaningful hair growth. Dr. Jonov at The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, offers many hair restoration treatments, including stem cell hair restoration to the Seattle, Bellevue, and Kirkland areas.
Stem cell hair restoration in Seattle, Bellevue, and Kirkland is created from human placenta. It contains beneficial proteins, growth factors, and hyaluronic acid (which you can find in many esthetic treatments like chemical peels and microneedling).
When injected into your skin, stem cells stimulate your body’s healing response. During a stem cell hair restoration treatment, this works to help stimulate, rebuild and support your hair follicles. Hair loss sometimes results in the shrinking of hair follicles. These hair follicles obviously do not produce hair anymore, but this does not mean they are inactive. They simply need the new foundation that stem cells help your body produce.
During the healing process, your body will produce collagen and elastin–two proteins found in your skin–that keep it bouncy and supple. They also aid in the formation of new skin after a wound or injury. This is how they repair your hair follicles–essentially, they repair them from the inside out.
To help boost the process, we combine stem cells with Platelet Rich Plasma–also known as PRP– to help you see better and quicker results.
PRP is found in blood. It consists of a higher number of platelets than other components of blood, growth factors, and proteins. PRP is vital to healing wounds, therefore, it aids stem cells in repairing your hair follicles and tells your body that the injection sites are injuries that need healing.
While the injection sites are tiny injuries, the response from your body will overcorrect. This means that once the injection sites heal, your body will begin to naturally fix the miniaturized hair follicles and damaged skin of the scalp. This provides your scalp and hair follicles with new skin and helps expand shrunken hair follicles. The stem cells and PRP prevents future hair loss and give extra support to hair follicles still producing hair.
Dr. Jonov and his team will begin your Seattle stem cell hair restoration appointment by drawing your blood to create PRP. Only a small amount of blood is needed, so it is a quick part of your stem cell hair restoration appointment. As your blood spins in our state-of-the-art centrifuge, Dr. Jonov will spread either a topical numbing gel or inject Lidocaine into the treatment areas to prepare them for the stem cell injections.
Once your scalp is numb, the centrifuge will have finished isolating the PRP. Dr. Jonov will then begin the treatment. Using a small needle, he will inject the stem cells and PRP directly into the shrunken hair follicles. Since this is a delicate process, stem cell hair restoration in Seattle can take up to 1 or 2 hours.
Due to the previous numbing agent, there is no need for anesthesia, so you are fully awake and aware during the procedure. Likewise, you should feel no pain. You will simply lay still as Dr. Jonov expertly injects the stem cells into your scalp.
Most of Dr. Jonov’s stem cell hair restoration patients undergo six treatments in six months. Dr. Jonov has found that this treatment protocol has yielded the best results. At your consultation, Dr. Jonov will better judge your unique hair restoration needs and individualize your stem cell hair restoration treatments, so that you can see optimal results.
Because stem cell hair restoration is an injectable treatment, patients can usually resume their daily activities after treatment. This includes working and exercising. Unless there is a concern, it is unlikely that Dr. Jonov will limit activity.
You can expect to feel some tightness and pain that feels like a sunburn for a few days after your procedure. For your own comfort, you may take it easy the day of your treatment, but the pain should not cause issues. Dr. Jonov will take care to explain any recovery protocol, if applicable to your case.
Stem cell hair restoration is a minimally invasive treatment. This means most healthy people experiencing hair loss are possible candidates for stem cell hair restoration in Bellevue.
Firstly, candidates for hair restoration must have good general health. Any major medical illness that is not properly managed could weaken your body’s healing process and not give you the results you want. For certain disorders and diseases, like blood disorders or cancer, Bellevue stem cell hair restoration may not be effective can increase the minimal risks associated with the procedure.
Secondly, people who have completely lost their hair or no longer have active hair follicles, stem cell hair restoration may not work for them. Stem cell hair restoration relies on the damaged hair follicles being shrunken, not fully non-functional. Other hair restoration may better help these individuals and Dr. Jonov can guide you in the correct direction for your goals.
Finally, as with any cosmetic procedure, you should fully understand it and have manageable expectations for what the treatment can do for you. During your consultation, Dr. Jonov will fully explain the technique used, benefits, any risks, and what you should expect from your results.
Bellevue stem cell hair restoration comes with many benefits for you and your procedure. Stem cell hair restoration comes with little risk and often provides effective results. Other than seeing new hair growth, stem cell hair restoration includes many benefits like:
Starting out, the most common treatment schedule is one treatment every month for six months. After the initial six months, it will depend upon the results you see and your personal hair goals.
Dr. Jonov typically advises a yearly maintenance treatment. This helps reinforce the follicles and skin of your scalp and continue to allow you to enjoy your new hair. For some patients with more extensive hair loss, or who simply didn’t see the results they wanted to from the first round of treatments, they can choose to undergo another six months of treatments. Most patients are satisfied with their results after one round of treatment.
During the six months of treatments, you may observe some peach fuzz like growth. Meaningful hair growth normally does not appear until at least one to two months after the final stem cell hair restoration in Kirkland.
Your results should continue to appear and enhance for up to a year after treatment. This is because stem cells and PRP continue to work the entire time.
Like with most hair restoration procedures, there is no guarantee you will see growth. Certain people will respond positively to one treatment and see no hair growth from others. Dr. Jonov will discuss all of the hair restoration options and help you decide which one will work for you.
